Marcel Khalife — Taqasim

Marcel Khalife needs no introduction to those familiar with the oud. A masterful player, composer, singer, and songwriter, he has contributed much to the world of Arabic music and oud playing. This album, a straightforward trio with bass and percussion, showcases the oud and the jazzier side of his playing in a stripped-down acoustic setting. Highly recommended.
